Production duties were handled by Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick. I wanted to try a few things in the studio that I suspected would quickly exhaust Nick's patience," as Costello put it in the liner notes to the 1994 Rykodisc reissue.

Elvis Costello's "country record" is usually written off as a vanity project, but Almost Blue is quite a bit more than that. It's one of the most entertaining cover records in rock & roll, simply because of its enthusiasm. The album begins with a roaring version of Hank Williams' "Why Don't You Love Me" and doesn't stop. Costello sings with conviction on the tear-jerking ballads, as well as on barn burners like "Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down

This thoughtful and carefully wrought album of country covers swings and moves in unexpected ways. You get the musical sensibilities and persuasive vocals of an established British rock star breathing surprising (and often profound) new life into old classics by American greats like Hank Williams, Bob Wills, and Merle Haggard. The hurt festers on George Jones’ Good Year for the Roses, the piano and pedal steel stings on Gram Parsons’ I’m Your Toy, and the country-blues rumbles in the gut on Lou Willie Turner’s Honey Hush.
